An annular eclipse occurs where the Moon appears to be smaller than the Sun, and its shadow could not fully cover the edges of the Sun, forming a "ring of fire". This interactive eclipse map (link is external) will show you times for the partial and total eclipse anywhere in the world.

The rays during the solar eclipse are way more powerful than the rays on a regular day of sunshine due to the positioning of the sun. "But yes, it's a celestial event, which can happen on any Full Moon whenever the Earth moves in between the Moon and the Sun", said Scientific Officer at SPACE, Mila Mitra.

Even though the disk of the sun will be temporarily covered by the moon during the eclipse, you still can't stare directly at it.

The moon is the same size as the sun in the sky and can, sometimes, pass in front of it in the ultimate cosmic photobomb. "That's because even though the sun's diameter is 400 times greater than the moon, the moon is 400 times closer to Earth", she said. "It's like being able to block out someone's head from across the room just by using your thumb".

By wearing the glasses, you will safely see the eclipse and protect your eyes for the next one in 2024. "So actually for any given location on earth, eclipses are much rarer - with an average time between eclipses of about 375 yrs - although the range of intervals is big (from a few years to over a millennium)", she said.

There will be another total lunar eclipse on January 21, 2019, which is often known as a blood moon as the moon turns red.

The 70-mile-wide swath of land where the full spectacle can be seen stretches from OR to SC, with 12 states in its path.

Over the next hour and a half, it will cross through Oregon, Idaho, Wyoming, Montana, Nebraska, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia, and North and SC. Hybrid eclipses where an annular eclipse changes into a total eclipse, and vice versa, is also possible.
